New dance workshops will have you flying high

New dance workshops will have you flying high

11 January 2017

Give aerial dancing a go and experience dancing in the air at taster workshops on Sunday 26 February at Ancholme Leisure Centre.

People of all ages can get involved in the workshops. They are from:

  • 10.30am to 12pm for people aged 18 and above
  • 12.30pm to 2pm for young people aged eight to 13 (this session is now fully booked)
  • 2.15pm to 3.45pm for young people aged 14 to 18
  • 4pm to 5.30pm for local dance teachers

The workshops are led by the dance team from artsNK.

You will learn new techniques on silks (two long pieces of fabric) and hoops in the air, which helps improve physical fitness, strength, core and flexibility.

These taster sessions will give an introduction to mounting, dismounting, climbing and poses.

The classes workout the entire body and are great for building confidence. As well as being fun it is a very different challenge from your average workout or fitness class.

The taster sessions are being held to find out if there would be an interest locally in bringing more dance activities like this to the area.

All workshops cost £2 per person. Booking is essential as places are limited.

To book a place on one of the workshops call 01724 297277 or email chelsey.everatt@northlincs.gov.uk.

Wear comfortable clothing and have your legs covered. Arrive 10 minutes before the session start time for registration. Young people aged under 18 need to register with a parent or carer.

The dance team at artsNK deliver aerial dance sessions across the Lincolnshire region.

Cllr Carl Sherwood, cabinet member for Health and Wellbeing, said:

“We are pleased to be working with artsNK to bring new dance opportunities to North Lincolnshire in addition to regular activities and showcases within the South Bank Dance programme.

“This is a unique opportunity for people in North Lincolnshire. Why not try something different this New Year? It is a brilliant way of keeping fit.

“If you would like to have a go at aerial dancing, make sure you book your place. If there is a real interest in the sessions, we will look at making it a permanent thing.”
